It has been announced that a new difficulty raid battle “Epic Raid” will be implemented in “Pokémon GO”.
Timeless Hoopa is coming to Epic Raids
The details of the “Epic Raid” announced this time are as follows.
- Starts 24 hours after the raid egg appears
- The Raid Boss appears 30 minutes after the egg hatches
- A remote challenge is not allowed. It can only be challenged locally by using a raid ticket
- When Hoopa Appears
- The raid battle will start at 11:00, 14:00, and 17:00 on October 16th.
- Epic raids will continue to happen in the future (another one during the season of light)
The first Epic Raid will be on October 16 at 11:00, 14:00, and 17:00 after “Whoa” appears.
It’s a Pokemon that no one expected to appear in a raid battle, so the difficulty (or strength) is quite worrying.
We don’t have much time to prepare, but let’s prepare “Bug” and “Fairy” type Pokémon as countermeasures!
